I am changing my car shortly and would like to know which small to medium-size family cars are not fitted with low profile tyres.

Generally, the highest level of spec you go for, the lower will be the profile of the tyres because for 'marketing' reasons luxury is deemed to equate with bling wheels. Ideal for a small car are 175/65 R14. Next best: 185/60 R15. Next: 185/55 R15. Don't go below 55 profile.
